The Louisa City Council meeting had to be rescheduled after only three of the council members attended, being Tom Parsons, Raymond Dixon and Rita Rose. Gloria Johnson, Lisa Schaefer and Brad Stark were unable to attend leaving the council with no quorum.
Council decided to reschedule the meeting for two days later on Thursday, Dec. 12.
Several ordinances were on the agenda, along with a one time pay raise for employees, a raise that is voted on each year at this time.
The agenda items that were to be voted on consisted of a second reading of compensation for cit employees, first reading for establishing the budget for the water and sewer commission which, after recently being abolished is now combined with the city and no longer separated, and also a first reading of compensation of the water sewer department employees.
City employees were on hand to discuss a raise they were given last summer that they say still isn't reflected on their paychecks.
A special meeting was scheduled for this Thursday evening at 7 p.m.
"We will go ahead and put the ordinances back on the agenda and vote on the one time pay raise for employees," city attorney Eldred "Bud" Adams said, with a Ho Ho Ho as he rode out of sight.

An 82-year-old deckhand died Tuesday after he fell off the Anderson Ferry into the Ohio River, according to a University of Cincinnati Medical Center spokeswoman.Virgil Souder, of Hebron, was in the frigid water about 30 minutes and was not wearing a life jacket, according to emergency communications.Water rescue crews were called to the ferry landing in Constance about 2 p.m.When emergency crews arrived, the ferry was about 200 yards offshore, according to emergency communications.Swift Water Rescue, Boone County Water Rescue, the Coast Guard, Dearborn County firefighters, the Cincinnati Fire Department and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife were all called to the scene.A woman reacts to the news that an Anderson Ferry deckhand has fallen overboard. She jumped out of her car and screamed, 'It's not my dad, is it?' Ed Powell, right, a friend of the man, confirmed that it was. / The Enquirer/Patrick ReddySoon after crews arrived, the ferry operator said he thought he saw the man in the water, and Hebron firefighters rode the ferry down the river.A tugboat retrieved the man from the river about two miles downstream, just before 2:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Hebron Fire Protection District.The tugboat took him across the river to its dock on the Ohio side of the river.Cincinnati Fire and EMS transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
River water temperatures were in the 40s
“He was in there for a fair amount of piece and when the crew got him out ... Cincinnati Fire got there about the same time and did a good job transporting,” said Dale Appel, captain of the Boone County Water Rescue Team.Appel said the temperature of the Ohio River was in the 40s Tuesday afternoon.“Hypothermia can set in pretty quick, especially with age and your ability to maintain yourself in the water,” he said.Appel said different stages of hypothermia can begin to set in any time water temperatures drop below about 60 degrees.“The colder it is, the faster things happen, none of it good. This time of year, hypothermia progresses quickly,” he said. “It was a very short time limit that the gentleman had to get out of the water and the longer he was in there the more hypothermic he became.”Appel said these types of incidents in which a person falls into the water off a boat are not very common.“This happens occasionally, but you never know when or what circumstances causes that,” he said. “The water was pretty rough today, there were white caps out there.”Anderson Ferry operates three different vessels: Deborah A, Boone No. 7 and Little Boone. The man fell from the Deborah A.Ed Powell, 65, of Constance, said he spent several minutes chatting with the deckhand about 12:30 p.m. before he started his shift Tuesday.Powell, who is retired and lives near the ferry, rode the boat back and forth several times Tuesday.“It was in bad shape out there – the river was rough,” Powell said. “It was rocking back and forth.”Powell had just gone home and was there for about five minutes when he heard the sirens of emergency crews responding to the ferry.
